Three men were shot at a vigil in Coram late Monday, Suffolk County police said.

None of the three shot on Judith Drive shortly after 9:30 p.m. had life-threatening injuries, police said in a news release.

The vigil was for one of two victims in a crash Friday afternoon in Middle Island that killed a driver, 16, and his passenger, 19, both males, police said.

Officers responded to the vigil after a resident reported hearing gunshots, police said.

When they arrived, police found three men had been shot — two brothers, ages 25 and 19 and both from Coram, and an Amityville man, 26.

The 25-year-old was taken by a private vehicle to John T. Mather Memorial Hospital in Port Jefferson where he was treated.

The two others were taken by Coram Ambulance to Stony Brook University Hospital.

Police said the victims are not pursuing charges.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Sixth Squad at 631-854-8652 or Crime Stoppers at 800-220-8477.
